System Engineer Manager 

Are you a System Engineer Manager with solid experience from large complex projects and among the best in your field? Then you might be the one we are looking for!

The preparations for one of the most exciting projects in Denmark; “Copenhagen Future Rail Network” are already starting now, and you can have a crucial role in making the foundational decisions such as; requirements specification on trains, customer journeys, technology, and obtaining offers from strategically important international suppliers. 

The Copenhagen Future Rail Network
The train is the future, but the future is not waiting for the train. Therefore, DSB is investing to ensure the Danes an environmentally friendly and attractive alternative to cars, buses, and aircraft. The Copenhagen Future Rail Network must promote growth and mobility in the metropolitan area and continue to contribute to a climate-friendly urban environment.

Over the coming years, the Greater Copenhagen S-train Network will be transformed from a traditional urban railway into the largest fully automated driverless transport system in the world. It is a major change to our 90-year-old railway, and it must all succeed without affecting the 375,000 times a day our customers choose to take a S-train

About the job 
You will be responsible for the overall system design and future automated system. In addition to leading the design work, you must coordinate design between system architecture, trains, track installations, communications, traffic centers, and critical work processes.
